Live music and delicious wine are a natural pairing! Fess Parker Winery has been a dedicated supporter of the Lobero for over three years.
Having grown up here and raised families here, the Parker Family has deep roots in the community. Their support of the Lobero Theatre grew from a desire to connect to family values of stewardship and support of the arts.
The Fess Parker Winery celebrated its 30th-anniversary last year, and their label Epiphany turns twenty in 2020.
We’ve been thrilled to continue our support of Lobero LIVE, not just because of the quality programming but because of how meaningfully the team at the theater has woven their work into the Santa Barbara community.
If you have visited the Lobero in the last few years, you probably noticed that Fess Parker wine has a strong presence at our concession stands and in our courtyard. However, Fess Parker’s involvement with the Lobero goes further than just supplying their award-winning wines to our patrons. As high-level sponsors, the Fess Parker Family has been instrumental in supporting our Jazz Residency. The Brubeck Jazz Residency is an educational program that offers junior high, high school, and college-level music instruction to students throughout Santa Barbara County.
“It’s been a thrill to see our family’s giving goals knit so richly into the fabric of the Lobero Theatre’s programming, from notable artists to education in our schools. We are proud to be a partner.”
Last year, the Fess Parker Family sponsored the Derek Douget Jazz residency, a standout program in the Lobero’s calendar year. Going above and beyond, they also hosted a pre-show reception for the culmination performance for the Derek Douget Band.
“We were delighted to participate not just by attending the culminating performance at the end of the residency, but by interacting with the community that Derek and his band spent time with during the week. Every aspect of that activation reinforced our appreciation of being partnered with the Lobero to bring arts to Santa Barbara.”
The Lobero is so fortunate to have partners like the Fess Parker Family who are invested in supporting the arts in our community. Their team is extremely talented and always open to finding new and innovative ways to collaborate. Check out what they are up to at the winery in Santa Ynez.
